Corker-Hoeven Amendment Gets Past Cloture Vote
“The [border] amendment, from Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota, cleared a procedural vote in the Senate 67-27. Fifteen Republicans voted in favor of cloture, and no Democrats broke from their party to oppose the measure,” Politico reported.Another big vote is coming on Wednesday, when the Senate will vote on closing debate on the overall amnesty bill. “The broad Corker-Hoeven compromise is likely the last major change to the immigration bill. Reid filed cloture on the overall Gang of Eight bill Monday afternoon, which sets up another procedural vote for Wednesday,” Politico explains.
